As a society, we tend to prioritize our physical health while mental struggles take a back seat. When was the last time you really took care of yourself instead of doing things you had to do? How often have your friends asked how you were doing and you said “Good” when “I’m not doing well and could use some help” would have been a more accurate response?
Mental, emotional, and behavioral disorders can all have an impact on our physical health and mental well-being, in both the short and long term. Many people struggling with these disorders suffer physical symptoms and fall victim to unhealthy coping habits such as substance abuse or self-harm. Even mild symptoms of depression or anxiety can cause trouble at work, strains in relationships, and missed opportunities.
Modern life presents us with many challenges but having the proper support to get through difficult times can help. While friends and family play a vital role, having the outside perspective of a trained counselor can be invaluable when you’re dealing with an issue related to your mental or emotional health.
Are you ready to speak to someone about depression, anxiety, or another mental health issue? Are you feeling “stuck” and are ready to make a change? The psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and other mental health professionals are standing by to help at Thriveworks Counseling & Psychiatry Long Beach.
Would I Benefit From Seeing a Psychiatrist?
While mental health professionals all have their benefits, psychiatrists are unique in their ability to assess mental health issues from a holistic, medical perspective.
Many clients find this perspective valuable, especially when they are experiencing both mental and physical symptoms. Having graduated from medical school, licensed psychiatrists are equipped to collect your medical history, run psychological and diagnostic tests, and evaluate your physical health.
Psychiatrists treat mental illnesses, emotional disorders, behavioral issues, as well as a host of other mental health struggles. They do so through prescription medication, psychotherapy (talk therapy), and a number of other treatment options.
